Final Destination - Where Did the Bus Come From?
When the girl gets hit by the bus about half way through the movie, where did the bus come from? If you rewind to earlier in that same sceen, you will notice that the street from the direction the bus came from is closed off with a power truck or something like that. In other words, there is no way that a bus could have been traveling in the direction it was going and as fast as it was going.
(I know these directions aren't clear, but I hope everyone can see what I'm trying to point out.)

If you buy the DVD version of the film, the directors explain this point!They explain that in the deleted scene they use the closed off street as a purpose, but realised that if the film was to work with the visulisations the main charector saw, they would need to edit it. So hoped no one would spot this (so it is an a slip up, but a realised one! Also notice in the same scene that the road is one minute wet, then the next dry and so on... not on purpose, but it took a day or two to film and the weather changed....also commented bye the directors!)

I know what you mean, but that's the point of the movie. Eg.- The computer screen would not have blown out like it did. The bus came and then continued on behind a building, at which point it probably disappeared for ever.

Just one thought. The reflection the main character sees wasn't from a bus passing by. It was another vision he had. In other words, the saw the reflection when there was no bus, giving him the feeling that a bus was going to be involved in a negative way, somehow. Some of the comments people made seemed to indicate that they didn't realize this, so if you didn't realize that, there you go!

Maybe the director/producer didn't really care about what happened to the Bus. It's a horror/chiller kinda movie. The idea is to scare the audience. Any rationality just after a period of irrational sudden fear destroys the effect. They don't want you to think about the film i.e. "Ahh, THAT'S where the Bus went." Hell, a girl just got splattered, people are sprayed with blood, and all the audience can think about is where the goddamn bus went, as it would be the last thing they saw. Who cares about the finer points? Just sit back and enjoy the gore! --KMeTG

OK, here's what happens. In case you haven't noticed, they are working against Death in this movie. Death can do anything he wants to. Therefore, he can make a bus come out of nowhere to kill this girl. It's as simple as that. Death can do it. *shrug* Andrea

The bus' reflection can be seen in the window about 5 seconds before the bus actually drives by. But this isn't related or a slip-up.

My comment doesn't have to with the above slip-up, but rather what some people mentioned about where the bus went or why it didn't stop. In the sequel, it is mentioned that because the bus hit the girl, it never picked up a character in the sequel, and as a result, that character never made it to a hotel in which she was supposed to die. That would leave me to believe that the bus driver stopped after hitting the girl, probably to deal with police and insurance and all that. But in this first movie, the bus driver doesn't seem effected at all and there is no indication that brakes were hit to stop.

1. Why wouldn't the bus stop after it hit the girl? Usually you notice if you hit the living heck outa someone 2. I watched this part, and it has to be turning, because the main character (forgot his name) sees the bus on the side of the glass, but then all the stuff happens, and the girl runs out on the wrong side of where he saw the bus...

I'm not sure but, i just watched that part of the movie, and i noticed that the bus is hitting her from an angle (while it's turning). So it actually looks like it's turning the curb, not coming straight on.
